:yahoo: Yippee!!!! I have cornfields alternating directly north and south of me every year. :evil:The latest research was begun after reports of bee kills at Indiana apiaries in the spring of 2010 that coincided with the peak period of maize planting in the area.

That's a relief!Barbarian said:Here goes. From my creaky memory I recall that French and German beeks lost bees/hives (?) from seed dressings. Apparently the dressing was released from the seed into the air because of either faulty adhesion or machinery. This occurred a few years ago. As a follow-up a report was published about 'gutation'. Under certain weather conditions the corn plants exude fluid. The systemic seed dressing was detected in this gutation fluid.
